However, the experts on our panel were not unanimous about the potential for
improving safety through better on-board technologies. The experts who
represent the part 135 perspective did not rate improving onboard safety systems
as highly as the other experts did. Only one of the six part 135 pilots or carriers
we surveyed ranked this as one of the top three potential improvements. The
other five indicated that improving on-board safety systems is not feasible or
would only slightly ...

Then, the launcher trajectory is tracked by ground radars and on board
navigation sensors (e.g., GPS), independent from those used for navigation. RSV
and RSV-A have the same type of displays but receiving data from different
localization means. The safety room is organized to ensure, as far as possible,
that safety team actions are correct and timely. Robust launcher and ground
facilities failure diagnostics, and structured decision making process are critical
elements to prevent ...

Clearly, some new form of government and private- sector partnership will need
to provide an infrastructure that will ensure and track the proper performance of
CMV safety systems, both within fleets and by enforcement agencies. Although
new onboard diagnostic technologies will have been introduced to assist the
driver, roadside inspector, and fleet safety manager in assessing CMV
compliance with safety regulations, each technology may require a different
approach. Research ...

Center of gravity That point in an object around which its weight is evenly
distributed or balanced (i.e., the mathematical summation of the center of weight
of every component aboard a vessel). Certificate of Inspection (COI) A certificate
issued by the U.S. Coast Guard that certifies a vessel has been inspected and
satisfies safety requirements for the hull and required onboard operating and
safety equipment. A COI for small passenger vessels less than 65 feet long is
valid for 3 years.

The automobile industry received the support of the DOT, through the National
Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), which raised safety issues
concerning fires that might be caused by fuel vapors stored onboard vehicles.557
The Bush administration also acted to prevent onboard controls from being
required.558 However, on August 19,1 987, EPA published a proposal to require
onboard canister systems for gasoline-powered motor vehicles, seeking
comment on ...

However, average crash severity of HPVs may be much higher than that of CTs,
which perhaps cancels out their potential safety benefits. Project survey findings
somewhat favor the use of larger trucks, but there are many contrary views as
well. Commercial vehicle onboard computers and mobile communications (also
known as telematics) cover a wide range of potential applications for operations
and safety. Many of these applications are beyond the scope of this report. The
report ...
